I would put vertical ribs in that plate to help eliminate bending/flex.rugger99 said:Not going to go with the tube and output clamp mount setup. I pulled the bottom cover off the Atlas and took it over to a friends shop and he is going to use it to draw up a plate that will bolt to the bottom of the case and then extend out 15" on one side and 7" on the other. The plate will be cut out of 1/4" and the extensions will be 2.5" wide and will be welded to a piece of 2" .25 wall DOM that will house bushings and will bolt to tabs on the inside of the frame rails. If anyone is interested in one of these plates, let me know as Luis will be saving the CAD drawing and already stated he would entertain cutting some and selling them if there is an interest.

I was thinking vertical ribs on the outside edges going up. Basically like a C-channel with the atlas sitting down inside the channel.rugger99 said:I have considered running a rib down the long axis of the extensions, basically forming a " T " shape. Is this what you were suggesting or did you have a different idea?
